Taster glass. I think we may want to separate true Radlers from fruit beers, as a finished beer with juice or soda added before packaging is a different animal than one fermented with fruit. For one, this is intended to be low-alcohol, and for two, itís not fair to be comparing this to a DFH Fort. That said, this is pretty tasty. Does not hide the fact that itís light in alcohol, though probably the grapefruit adds some sugar calories. In fact, it does have a bit of an added sugar taste that might have been meant to keep the grapefruit from souring up the works. Not a world-beater, but recommended if I were ever actually "on the go."

Very carbonated, very fruity. Must like grapefruit to enjoy this one. Like many other reviewers, this reminds me strongly of a Squirt soda, with grapefruit. Pours orange, with a quickly dissipating head. Very light-bodied, sweet and smooth. Lively carbonation like a soda, short sweet grapefruit finish. GREAT for a post-lawnmowing beer, very refreshing.

Itís alcoholic grapefruit, incredibly effervescent, sweet and tart nice light body perfect for drinking too much of.

16 oz can, 40/60 blend. Pretty much straight up grapefruit juice but less acidic and a little more approachable. Quite refreshing if a one trick pony... Gotta up my score based on sheer summertime enjoyment. Picking this over higher rated beers in my fridge more than once."

Bottle @ Mattern Sausages. Somewhat hazy golden straw pour with a short lived white head. Smells of grapefruit/citrus soda. Sort of like Squirt... Citrusy soda-water, lemon-lime, and a bit of grass. Mild grain character. Flavor has some soda and grain/bread sweetness. Lots of grapefruit soda and lemon seltzer. Very light bitterness on the finish. This was pretty much perfect after a 2 mile run. Crushable.

Pours a cloudy yellow colour, with no head or lacing. Its tastes like straight up grapefruit. Reminds me of the grapefruit crush soda from my youth.

veceo (511) - CROATIA - AUG 15, 2014
Cloudy pale yellow color, thin white head. Light body, high carbonation. Texture is watery. Aroma of grapefruit and sugar. Highly sweet taste with sugary finish. I juste hate overly carbonated and watery radlers.

HammerTroll (450) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - AUG 13, 2014
Cloudy yellow, no head. Pleasant orange and grapefruit aroma. Thin body, fizzy carbonation, sparkly. Taste is balanced sweet and sour. Very good for a radler.

Sampled at a craft beer bar - light in color and very carbonated. Tastes like a Sprite or Sierra Mist. You might as well be drinking a Sprite or Sierra Mist.

I like this thing. If you donít want to get drunk, itís good. Usually I do, however. The flavor is nice, obviously grapefruit. It really has more of a soda flavor with almost an untraceable taste of beer. Very fresh,citrus, thirst-quenching goodness. They have interesting glassware as well. One glass is a bit phallic looking, though. Cheers!
